Lower limb Specialist Team

lower limb resized

This team is based in the physiotherapy gym. The gym is fully equipped with excellent rehabilitation

equipment including static bikes, rowing machines, cross trainers and specialist equipment such as the ‘Unicam’ bike.

The team manages all lower limb disorders including conditions such as degenerative arthritis, sports injuries, soft tissue problems and post-operative rehabilitation.

More complex conditions treated include ‘growing pains’ in children and adolescents and also those who warrant biomechanical analysis and close discussion with orthotic colleagues. The orthotic department is based in the same area and combined appointments can be made if necessary. 

The team members also work closely with their orthopaedic consultant colleagues and they are skilled and experienced at undertaking full assessment and treatment planning for full rehabilitation. This is likely to include exercises in the gym to take advantage of the facilities, and a home exercise programme. The emphasis is on restoring health, fitness and returning to normal activities including work, sport and PE at school.
